Neil, By **S I meant to refer to SAS, sometimes viewed as unmentionable on this list. I was an early and longtime user of TeX, typsetting my math PhD dissertation and that of a few of my classmates, and still fire up MikTex for some applications. So the LaTex learning curve shouldn't be a barrier. What is a barrier is collaboration with others - on some projects it would useful and others it would be an obstacle. ODT I can at least convert to other formats that can be marked up, but not **TeX. Hence my reluctance to go too far down that path. Still, I will give it a look. cheers, Jeph Neil Shephard wrote:

I've no idea what you refer to with **S, but I'd highly recommend investing the time to go through the learning curve for using LaTeX. I find it an absolute delight to use as it separates style from content so you don't have to worry about wasting time formatting each bit of text. There are innumerable useful user-written commands for generating tables and formatted output that can be '\include{}' or '\input{}' into your main document, and embedding png/eps/ps formatted graphs is a doddle. Some packages off the top of my head that are very useful for this are -listtab- and -tabout-. More can be found with -findit latex- and the top set of hits point to UCLA's web-pages on this subject "Stata tools for LaTeX" http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/latex/default.htm The only major draw back is that you have to drag people away from their ingrained usage of WYSIWYG word-processing who might never have considered that there is an alternative to the ubiquitous M$-Word.
